I would be happy to provide you with guidelines and resources for hands-on composting k - 12. I taught the Common Roots program for integrated gardening, ecology and community projects for 5 years, and am developing a collection
of composting investigations.
My strongest critique of most composting curriculums is that it makes sense to begin by exploring the forest soil and ecosystem. Then guide kids in ways to apply the natural 3ays that nature sustians itself to how we farm and garden
in harmony with natural principles.
Ther are a number of good curriculum out there.
The Association for Vermont Recyclers, 64 Main Street MOntpeleir, VT
publishes a great k-12 curriculum. I have also found many rich integrated resources in the Waldorf Educational movement.
I taught a course at Antioch this past summer on Holistic Environmental Education MEthods, and gatherd a good bib. for the students.
for further conversation, call Eli KAufman 802 - 223 - 0469
It would be helpful to work together to assemble a bibliography of composting educational resopurces. I'dlove to work on this with other folks.
Let's do it !
